A dirty toaster is not only less efficient than a clean toaster, a dirty toaster is also a fire hazard.

Here's the fast and easy way to keep your toaster clean:

Unplug your toaster, pull out the catch tray and empty it into the trash.

Next, flip the toaster over and shake it out over a trash can.

With an old, moist toothbrush - scrub the inside of your toaster clean.

Let it dry for at least 24 hours (you might add a sticky note to let your family know about the downtime).

Once again, flip the toaster and shake out any remaining gunk.

Plug it back into the electrical outlet and voila - you have a safe, more efficient toaster.

P.S. Have a look at my other investigations, videos and podcasts and get the real truth about life...
